Laser cut on B&W photograph, metal and stucco

Carlos Garaicoa combines photographs, drawings and mixed media as forms of intervention to examine architecture and urbanism as mirrors of political reality and social development. Through black and white photographs, he merges imagery of dilapidated buildings with imaginary buildings whose construction was never completed. The work is a form of criticism against the government, which has not prevented the decay of Havana, since the Cuban revolution. "Para transformar la palabra política en hechos, finalmente II" Translates to (To transform political words into action, finally II).
